Test and Trace Returned to High Demand

As pledged by City Council Member-elect Julie Menin and State Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright, a Test and Trace van returned to Roosevelt Island on Monday. Demand was great, leading to four-hour waits in lines stretching through Good Shepherd Plaza to near the river.

Into a chilly evening, the line still lingered outside the testing van at Good Shepherd Plaza.

So many showed up for testing that supplies ran out and had to be replenished early. But a lot of tests were taken, and Public Safety officers got kudos for helpfulness and keeping things calm.

According to reports, Roosevelt Island was not alone as long lines were reported across the city.
